Thank you for getting back to me. I tried the new code, but it came back with an error now when going to edit a page.
Warning: session_start() [function.session-start]: Cannot send session cache limiter - headers already sent (output started at /**/**/public_html/admin/contents_update.php:3) in /**/**/public_html/WA_SecurityAssist/Helper_PHP.php on line 5
Any other ideas appreciated, I'm stumped. thank you,
